Thank you Tom.  These are great examples.  Does anyone else have a DPA success story they would like to share?

Re: Ask the Expert: Getting Started with Data Protection Advisor 6.0

With the new cross-domain functionality of the Analysis Engine you can take your alerting capabilities to the next level. Instead of just alerting when a certain condition is met (my backup failed), you can now alert when conditions across multiple objects are met. For example, a backup failed and the CPU utilization on that client was over 85%, or a switch port is down and these are the hosts/clients connected to that switch port that will be affected.

It took a bit more then 5 minutes.  Only because I didn't see the 2 cpu requirement.   Had to reboot to adjust the vCPU's.

Re: Ask the Expert: Getting Started with Data Protection Advisor 6.0

I have a question.  I'm creating a report that I want emailed.  How can I change the order?  So as an example, the "Backup All Clients" report.  I want it sorted by the client column.   Under Modify Custom Template(I maid my own copy), I found under advanced a "Order Flag".  It doesn't appear to do anything for me.

Re: Ask the Expert: Getting Started with Data Protection Advisor 6.0

Hi,

The order flag is on the data source and will therefore order the data returned from the data source, however the subsequent operators may affect that ordering. I would recommend adding an Order operator (under the Misc category of operators) at the end of the report flow, to control the order of the data to be displayed.

Can you PROVE SLA attainment or recoverability of your mission-critical data today?  If not, why not?  Have you tried DPA 6? bit.ly/13ikUh1
